Illustrated Beach Map – Illustrated map of the beach in Venice, Florida

Illustrated Beach Map

Illustrated Beach Map – I was recently contacted by Sarasota Magazine with a request for an illustrated map of Venice Beach (Florida, not California). The concept were pretty straightforward; highlight all of the focal points of the beach as spot illustrations. Of course they provided me with a list of the relevant focal points and page layout requirements. They did have a rather tight deadline, but it was manageable.

I did the illustration part and Gigi Ortwein did the design work after I was done. Gigi is an awesome designer I have known since my days at Ringling College of Art, so I was excited to see what she would do. Of course I wasn’t disappointed and I look forward to working with her again.

The map appears in Sarasota Magazine so go check it out.


Escape Key Graphics’ vector based maps can be blown up to a poster of any size with little or no degradation and Escape Key Graphics’ 3D maps can be rendered from different angles and zoom extents creating endless new possibilities. The 3D method can also provide a more realistic look than the vector method. In both cases buildings, paths and everything else in your map is like an object that can be moved, shrunk, deleted, etc, making revisions easy and quick. Expansion of your park, site, or facilities seldom means recreating your map from scratch.

Escape Key Graphics can create great maps for boat shows, towns and cities, campuses, hospitals, housing complexes or just about any other place. Escape Key Graphics can show how work flows through your factory, how an ecosystem works or produce any of a number of other map like visual solutions.
